Denver, CO (enspiria.com) November 3, 2009 – Enspiria® Solutions, a leading provider of consulting and systems integration to the utility and government sectors, announced that the company has been included in the recently published Microsoft Smart Energy Reference Architecture (SERA).
SERA was developed by Microsoft as a definitive reference in the utility and power industry and addresses technology integration across the full smart energy ecosystem. SERA gives utilities the ability to rapidly assess technologies needed to manage smart devices and to then develop a vision and strong foundation for migrating to the new infrastructure. Enspiria Solutions’ Business Intelligence offering, ESIntial™, is highlighted in the 130 page document, showing how disparate data can be combined spatially and visually to provide new insight into the decision making process of a utility.
The recent announcement by President Obama of the $4.5B funding of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA 2009) has highlighted the importance of Smart Grid projects to improve the nation’s infrastructure. Upgrading technology has become critical for utilities, and Enspiria has developed a set of tools and processes to maximize the return on investment on Smart Grid projects.
Aaron Patterson, Enspiria General Manager of Engineering said, “Enspiria is proud to have been chosen by Microsoft for inclusion in this important publication. By using the best of breed technologies, Enspiria’s clients gain significant benefits in the design, planning and implementation of their Smart Grid projects.”
